We are open! Here are our new Covid-19 procedures

Our number 1 priority is the safety of customers and staff, so we have opted for a pre-booking system to ensure no overcrowding, and the ability to manage whatever happens on the COVID-19 front.  We will have a maximum of 25 boulderers and 40 roped climbers at any one session.  We realise that this is inconvenient, but it means if any session is attended by someone who has or may have, COVID-19, we can isolate the staff team involved and contact every person present immediately.

We ask that customers wear a face covering when entering the building and when in non climbing zones such as the cafe, toilets, locker area.

The centre will be open to all under 18s but they MUST be supervised by a competent adult climber. Competent climbers can supervise two novices max!

14-17 year olds who have already been assessed as competent can attend without supervision.

We will also be accepting new climbers, who must complete a registration form online before booking a session. Novices must be supervised for ropes by a competent adult roped climber or have watched the bouldering safety video to boulder.

Walk-ins will also be accepted if there are spaces available, however we suggest that you book.

Instructional Sessions

We are now be running some instructional sessions.

Family sessions: 2 hours instruction for up to 4 people from the same household, there must be at least one adult in the session. £15 per person. Ideal for parents looking to get their kids into climbing.

Introductory sessions: 2 hours instruction for adults in both ropes and bouldering. £35 1:1 or £25 each 1:2.

Refresher: an hours session recapping the ropes, £20.

Please call or email to book one of these sessions, a deposit will be required upon booking.


In line with recommendations from the Association of British Climbing Walls, we will be running a limited number of sessions during the school term. These sessions will be for children going for their level 4 & 5 only.

The 6 week block will be bookable from Monday 31st August. There are limited spaces available, these will be offered on a first come first serve basis.

The 6 week block starts from 10th September. Payment for the full 6 weeks must be taken upon booking, this is £108 in total.

Please call to book.

Normal climbing sessions can be paid for upon arrival, please try and pay contactless where possible; alternatively you can purchase a 5 or 10 visit punch card online or sign up to a standing order.

Standing Order forms are available here; if this is your preferred route, you can download one and bring it with you filled in and signed.

We have only set alternate panels on roped areas to help maintain Social Distancing, and have marked out individual bouldering sectors to keep to the 2-metre guidance.  We will offer face masks for sale, or you can bring your own; they are not compulsory whilst climbing but we’d suggest you wear one around the centre.  All customers must adhere to our COVID-19 Code of Practice. Please familiarise yourself with this before you arrive.

We have had to increase our prices for entry; our shop and cafe prices are unchanged.

We very much look forward to welcoming you back.
